I'd probably just get the whole cv shaft since it would be a lot faster, just remove and replace. Also your going to need tranny fluid since you'll have to drain it before you remove the axle. You still may need tranny fluid even if you just replace the boot if you have to remove the shaft. If it's not making any noises though you may just want to replace the boot. Then again I'd probably replace the boot too instead of spending money on a axle, funny this is a real hard decision and has me thinking which way to go too lol
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
